Black Arm by Flowcine
The Flowcine Black Arm is a 3-axis dampening system with a Tranquilizer vibration mount for stabilizing roll and tilt as well as vertical motion and vibrations. The Black arm is a hardmount system, made for gimbals, that you want to mount on vehicles such as cars, ATVs, boats, etc…
Our Black Arm Complete kit can support camera packages between 11 and 70 lbs.
We have mounting options for the Movi camera including Toad-in-a-hole and Ninja Star plate. The Tranquilizer plate has a pattern that also supports the Ronin gimbal system if you have a Ronin mount.
The Black Complete ships with four 7.0mm springs and four 7.5mm springs, that takes the entire range of 11-70lbs. You can use the springs in single (one spring on each side) or dual (two springs on each side) configuration, to precisely achieve the lift needed.
The vertical, tilt and roll dampening action is created by custom made hydraulic dampeners that are fully adjustable. You adjust the dampening with a knob that has 22 steps, to precisely dial in the exact amount you need for your shot. The Black Complete ships with a total of six dampeners, allowing for dual dampeners on each axis if needed, or as spares.
The Flowcine Tranquilizer is the next-generation of vibration isolators, specifically designed around the geometry of a electronic gimbal device.
The Flowcine Tranquilizer uses custom polymers instead of wire rope. The system lets you to go from different types of hardness and amount of polymers which allows for perfect tweaking of your setup weight, allowing the Tranquilizer to work optimally. Our package has three sets of polymers, shore 30, shore 40,and shore 60.
The Tranquilizer also includes the Flowcine Passive plates. These adds more mass to the system, and lets you dial in the perfect weight and makes a huge difference compensating incoming hard shocks. These are very easy to add and remove on the fly, while your gimbal is already attached to the system. We have eight passive plates in the package, enabling you to add just over 11LBS to the Tranquilizer.
